Kettering University graduated 175 undergraduates and 68 master's candidates during Commencement ceremonies June 9.

Commencement June 2012Kettering University celebrated the single most treasured day in the life of a university on Saturday, June 9, when it hosted Commencement for more than 200 graduates. President Robert K. McMahan challenged the graduates to "create better lives for ourselves, our children and our grandchildren. Please share your future with us. We are extraordinarily proud of your accomplishments. Congratulations on a job well done."

Undergraduate student speaker Charles Fischer Jr. spoke on the significant milestones that each graduate had achieved. "Be mindful not to abandon the pursuits that brought us here," he told his fellow graduates. "If we apply ourselves to something that comes naturally, it will take us to the top. Carry forward the banner of personal excellence that brought us here," he added.

Alumnus Bob Kagle '78 presented the Commencement address. He told the graduates that failure is an invitation to try again. Kagle left students with three recommendations: have a big heart so you can care about your cause, have big ears to listen to the marketplace and have a big tent to hold your team because it takes a team to build something important.
